This collection includes: "The Glass Essay", a powerful poem about the end of a love affair, told in the context of Carson's reading of the Bronte sisters; "Book of Isaiah", a poem evoking the deeply primitive feel of ancient Judaism; and "The Fall of Rome", about her trip to "find" Rome and her struggle to overcome feelings of a terrible alienation there.

The God of Glass

The God of Glass

This is a funny, violent book - but it is also a Morality.

This is a funny, violent book - but it is also a Morality. Geoffrey Glass, a man with a terrible secret, comes to Petroc, a village in the West Country. There is a 'plague of witches' - madness by possession - that begins to rage shortly after he has arrived. Glass' secret gives him a strange power of control over these witches, and with its aid he founds a new shamanistic religion which spreads worldwide. However, Glass' secret is a stumbling-block to his friends and a provocation to his enemies, who force him to reveal it in a climax which is both weird and moving. Peter Redgrove wrote this story of horror and the occult in the belief that in going all out for a total experience - in going rather further than such stories normally do - he would draw attention to the real themes that are merely undercurrents in most modern stories of the supernatural. There is a strong factual basis for this remarkable fiction that makes it in no way less entertaining, but considerably more horrifying. The book also contains an introduction by Jay Ramsay. 'It is the sheer exuberance which is refreshing, the sense of a writer luxuriating in language, releasing a torrent of coruscating imagery.' (TLS) 'Whatever Peter Redgrove writers is always compelling reading.' (Books and Bookmen) Peter Redgrove (1932-2003) worked in several interlinked fields: as a poet, novelist, playwright, and in psychological practice. He believed creative, psychological and scientific work are aspects of the same common study, and his insights are profound, illuminating and constantly exciting. He received many awards during his life and was especially honoured by receiving the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 1996.

God s Mysteries and Paradoxes Looking Through the Glass Darkly

God   s Mysteries and Paradoxes  Looking Through the Glass  Darkly

God’s Mysteries and Paradoxes: Looking through the Glass Darkly is a book about paradoxes and how they were actually created by God to bring unique enlightenment but also to confound the so-called earthly wisdom. Paradoxes also keep believers humble by showing them that God’s ways are not always man’s ways. “For this is what the high and lofty One says—he who lives forever, whose name is holy; I live in a high and holy place but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite (Isaiah 57: 15).” This book introduces the reader to the ancient idea of “The Divine Paradox” written by Hermes Tristmegistus (thrice great) in The Divine Pylander. An additional book, Corpus Hermeticum, was translated by Marsilo Ficino during the early Renaissance and helps frame the philosophical paradox of nature versus faith. This book, along with other fragments written by Hermes Trismegistus, was translated in the early 1400s and caused a rebirth of its teachings during the Renaissance. Modern secret societies and the occult are using much of the same knowledge to deceive people in the world today. Evidence shows Albertus Magnus, Roger Bacon, and the Knights Templar possessed ancient knowledge and from it gave rise to secret organizations and societies operating today, including the Illuminati, Freemasons, and modern occultists.
